85 HP, 196 cid, L-Head In-Line 6-Cylinder Engine, 3-Speed Transmission Engine No. 3294115 After the end of the WWII, it wasn't only a race to see who could get into production first, but it was also a challenge to see who could come out with a completely new post-war design. Among the major established carmakers, those honors went to Studebaker. With rather unique styling created by the design talents with Raymond Loewy's studio, the 1947 line-up of Studebakers was smart looking and cutting-edge modern. One of the most interesting innovations in this new line-up were the Starlight coupes. This example, finished in dark red metallic with a custom interior using black Houndstooth fabric with heavy white vinyl bolsters, is as modern as they get. Its options list was typical for the day, radio, heater-defroster and clock, plus accessory driving lights. With its unique wrap-around backlight, the Starlight coupes have become a very desirable body style for both Studebaker and contemporary enthusiasts alike. While this car is quite presentable in its current condition, a deep detailing and a little tune-up would go to help make this car all that much better for its new owner.
